The Out-Going Scholarships scheme is suit­able for cur­rent schol­ars or Master’s degree hold­ers from V4 coun­tries to study at accred­ited pub­lic or pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties or insti­tutes of the respec­tive national acad­e­mies of sci­ences in the fol­low­ing coun­tries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and Ukraine (please note that the same rules are applic­a­ble to Kosovar uni­ver­si­ties).

The applicant’s home and host uni­ver­sity must be dif­fer­ent, i.e. the pre­vi­ous level of uni­ver­sity stud­ies (last obtained aca­d­e­mic diploma before start­ing the schol­ar­ship) must be com­pleted in a coun­try other than where the appli­cant applies for studies.

  1. I am really interested in Visegard Scholarship, but there are some things that i do not understand.
    I found this scholarship here
    here it says that Croatian citizens can apply, but on the main page they do not mention Croatia, so I do not know if i can apply??
    How do I find the host universities? How can I contact them?

    Can you please answer me as soon as possible.

    Thak you very much..

    1. Dear Vlatka,

      We are not sure why Croatia is not mentioned on the official site. Croatia must have been on the list of countries mentioned in our first source. Maybe you should check with the responsible contact persons regarding this issue.
      As for how to apply, please see the instructions here:… and consider the links and instructions also given in our post.

      Kind regards,
      Mladiinfo team
